Mohammed Faizan Shaikh , Sudhakar Umale. "Noise and Vibration Analysis of Diesel Engine Using Diesel and Jatropha Biodiesel", International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology (IJETT), V12(5),228-231 June 2014. ISSN:2231-5381. published by seventh sense research group


Biodiesel is an alternative fuel which can be used in place of diesel in diesel engines either in pure form or by blending it with diesel fuel. The most important advantage of the biodiesel is that, it is a renewable source of energy. In addition, it also has a tendency to reduce the pollution level which in turns reduces the global warming effect. The physical behaviour of a compression ignition engine plays very important role in case of an automobile. The paper involves, comparison of vibro-acoustic behaviour for diesel engine using conventional diesel, biodiesel and its blends at different load conditions. Single cylinder four stroke engine is used for the experimentation. Results of the investigation shows that, with increase in percentage of biodiesel blends, noise and vibration reduces comparably for most of the conditions. The detailed investigation is described in the subsequent literature and the results obtained are validated against previous literature study.
